Taking it Easy

This weekend I overworked myself, pushing past my prego limits (because I hate admitting that I can’t do as much as I was before), then realized that the itch in my throat was not from having to stand up and teach a class after not doing so for over two months, but from nasty bacteria that I probably got from teaching dirty, dirty teenagers (most of them are not actually dirty, but they all seem to be sick this winter!).  So I wrote some sub plans for a few days and took it easy. I did some knitting and T.v. watching, which I haven’t done in a while. I also played around with a few card ideas I have been thinking about recently. I can’t remember which blog I got the ideas from, so if you know feel free to put a mention in the comments.


I used some cards I already had printed for another use, so the text isn’t great. I like the flowers, but I think I would change the text to make it larger and more centered on the card. The butterflies I’m not sure what I could do. I played around a bunch before I glued them down. Maybe if I reversed the gradient it would look better, but I’m not sure. I would also change the font size on that one as well. Maybe there are too many butterflies.


And I know it has been a bit warmer in these parts (still below freezing some mornings), but my cat still thinks it isn’t tolerable yet. She continues to find warm places to sleep.

    Wow, so jealous of your cat right now. I am cold and having a tired day. That’s exactly where I want to be! Instead of waiting for a phone meeting.

    I like the cards!
